Gov. Newsom Calls on Mayors to ‘Step Up’ After String of Robberies Hit the Golden State 


Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) called on California mayors to “step up” after mob lootings and organized robberies plagued the state this past weekend.

“I’m not the mayor of California, but I was a mayor, and I know when things like this happen, mayors have to step up,” Newsom said Monday at a San Francisco vaccine clinic. “That’s not an indictment. That’s not a cheap shot.”

Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton, medical pharmacies, marijuana dispensaries, and other retailers in the San Francisco area were targeted by back-to-back mob lootings. Additionally, 80 looters ransacked a Nordstrom location 25 miles outside of San Francisco and got away with close to $200,000 in merchandise. 

At least four people robbed and stole $40,000 from a Lululemon location about 50 miles outside
